“The kingdom of God is in your midst,” said Jesus when the Pharisees asked him when the kingdom would come in Luke 17. The kingdom came in Jesus, the King. It will come in fullness when he returns. How are we to live in the in between times? As Jesus teaches his disciples on his way to Jerusalem and the cross, he points them to things like forgiveness, faith, humility, gratitude and the call to be ready amidst a world that remains unready like the people of Noah’s day or the people of Sodom before its fall.
